Mom’s gift for Mother’s Day
Mother’s Day is right around the corner and you dads out there are starting to think about what to have the kids give mom for her day. You know she loves the cards and crafts that you help the kids create. They’ll be hanging on the refrigerator for months. Take my advice and don’t go out and help the kids get some cheap earrings. You know she will smile and praise the kids for their thoughtfulness, but you also know that the earrings will go in a drawer never to be seen again.
This year give her something she will really appreciate. The next time she is out of the house organize the kids and clean the house. Have the younger kids pick up their toys and put them away. Have them dust the furniture and straighten up any messy areas. While the youngsters are busy, have the older kids mop the floors and vacuum the carpets. Dad, get out your CLR Bath & Kitchen Cleaner and clean the counters, toilet and bathtub. As a nice touch, go out and get some fresh cut flowers to add a hint of spring to your home.
This present will be a winner on many levels. Even though cleaning the house is not solely mom’s responsibility, the brunt of the cleaning usually falls on her lap. Not only will this present relieve some of her burden. It will give her some time that she can be with the family. You will earn some points for your thoughtfulness and she will be thrilled that the kids put some effort into her present. This present will be a win, win for everybody!
